45TH SOUTH AUSTRALIAN STATE SQUARE DANCE CONVENTION - POSTPONED UNTIL 2021
The 45th South Australian State Square Dance Convention Committee has, regretfully, decided to postpone this year's convention until the 27th to 29th August next year, 2021.

We will contact all dancers who have already registered to offer a refund, or alternatively dancers may opt to retain their registration for next year.

It is strongly recommended that anyone who has booked accommodation contact their accommodation provider to discuss either a refund or transfer of their booking to next year. Several places have already been contacted in this regard, but it is important that you each follow this up to ensure that your individual requirements have been met.

Hope that we will all be back square dancing in the not-too-distant future. In the meantime, I trust that you and your family and friends remain safe and well.

NT 62ND AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL SQUARE DANCE CONVENTION
Living our Dream Together in the Top End - Darwin 2021

2020 has not been a very good year so far, but we would like to brighten up your day by offering you some good news. The 2021 Australian National Square Dance Convention will be happening in Darwin, NT, from Thursday 24 June - Monday 28 June 2021.

We are kicking off the convention with a sunset function on Wednesday 23 June. This is complimentary for everyone who completes the registration form, even if you are a non-dancer. We will give you more details closer to the day. Right now, just make a note of it in your diary and make sure you are in Darwin for that special event.

Our theme night, on Monday, is an opportunity to unwind and find something fun to wear. Live your dream - be a superhero, sailor, astronaut, athlete, doctor, clown - or just live your dream of lazing on a tropical beach in shorts. It's your choice.

We have a number of ways to register this year. You can use the printed form and post it to our Registrations Officer, Kaye Chandler at P O Box 294, Glenorchy TAS 7010. Include a cheque or money order, or you can transfer the money (information is on the registration).

We have also uploaded a registration to our website, https://www.darwin2021.com/registration On that page, you can download a pdf, complete the details and then email it to our Registrar, Kaye Chandler, at tassquare@bigpond.com.au . You can also complete the online form and submit it directly to us. Don't forget to transfer the registration cost and email a copy of the EFT receipt. Your surname is the reference.

We have extended the early bird registration date to 30 September 2020, so there is still time to get in on the reduced price.

We look forward to seeing you in Darwin, 2021.
